Our group (Becky Taylor-Scaife, Sam Jones, Sam
Taylor-Scaife, Tom Taylor-Scaife, Abbie Kirk and Andrew Honeysett) is made up of family members and we are all local to Harrogate. We are doing the challenge not only to raise money for our selected charity Mind; but we are all doing it to prove to ourselves we are capable of rising to the challenge as, if you know us, it is VERY out of our comfort zone.
None of us are athletic or fit in any shape or form, so this is going to give us the drive and motivation to change for a good cause. We are aware that it's going to be really tough but hopefully with the support of each other we can manage to achieve our goal of all 3 peaks. And who knows it could possibly lead to more achievements in the future.
More than anything we would love to raise awareness of mental health
the support available for anyone who is suffering from the wide range of issues related to mental health.We have all been affected in some form or another from mental health problems, whether its you or someone you know, its real and its time we made a change. Hopefully through this challenge we can promote the understanding of mental health through Mind.
Our main inspiration for stepping up to the challenge was our cousin Emily Taylor who completed the challenge on 24/06/18 in memory of her father, and our uncle, David Taylor. She also did a grand job of fundraising and supporting the charity mind as well and we are continually proud of Emily, not only for her strength in doing the challenge but for being strong in many ways! She is a true credit to the family and solid inspiration for us all.
Update - We are pushing the event date back to the 4th May.
